Hi Esben,

As I understand it, the rendering functions of the underlying libraries
are quite tightly tied to the file management functions. It would take
quite a bit of effort to split off the file management functions to a
core daemon and have the rendering done separately. It would be nice,
but difficult.

Regardless, I doubt that mldonkey would be chosen to handle file
management at all. Epiphany tries to keep the dependency requirements
low, and to say "you must install mldonkey to run this web browser"
seems excessive.
